5.3a install problem

Hi all.

Just downloaded the 5.3a zip but can't install.

I have MyTraffic 2010 crossgraded to 5.3 Professional running on Win7 64.

After extracting the zip, the installer works up until the batch process, where I get a message in the cmd window that it cannot find the TDX.exe. The installer stops at this point.

I can find this TDX.exe manually in the MyTraffic folder within the main FSX folder, so I'm confused why the installer can't.

Basically that's where I'm at.

Can you help please.

Thanks

Stu

First trial:

Browse to the MyTraffic folder. Double click to tdx.exe without thinking. Double click to update53a.bat and let it run again. If all works through, you see the schedules being compiled, all is well and problem solved. If not, please ask again with as much info as possible.

By the way, if you would say what exactly you downloaded this would help to understand. Its not clear what you refer to with 5.3a zip.

I followed your instructions but still no install possible.

I would like to send you a screen shot of the cmd window message but a 20k attachment limit is too small to allow this.

The 5.3a zip I downoaded was from fsrail.

One thing, though. after running tdx.exe manually and then the 5.3a batch, the traffic communicator is now updated and says my install is 5.3a.

I do not believe this update has happened, as the cmd window only stays active or a few seconds. I believe a correct install would take several minutes?

Now, FSX just hangs at the splash screen.

Could you give clear instructions on how to remedy this situation.

Thanks
